Air Canada E190 at Vancouver on Apr 30th 2012, flaps malfunction leads to loss of separation
Last Update: May 24, 2012 / 21:01:11 GMT/Zulu time
In the meantime a DHC-3T Turbine Otter was on approach to Vancouver at 4500 feet MSL in contact with terminal control. Terminal control advised the crew of the Turbine Otter that an Embraer 190 was going around and would stop their climb at 4000 feet.
While attempting to contact departure control the crew of the Embraer received a TCAS traffic then resolution advisory and followed the advisory climbing the aircraft to about 4600 feet. The crew of the Turbine Otter visually acquired the Embraer and saw her passing through their 12 o'clock position at about 4000 feet.
After being clear of conflict both aircraft positioned for safe landings.
The Canadian TSB reported the separation reduced to less than 500 feet vertically and 0.5 to 0.75nm horizontally.
